Plot synopsis
Making what the filmmakers believe is a last-chance survey of what ancient customs still remain in tribal Africa, Africa. Blood and Beauty presents a bounty of fascinating -- and sometimes hard to watch -- ethnographic footage. Director Sergey Yastrzhembsky has had a high-profile career, working in the administrations of Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin before segueing to journalism. Arguably, the film should remain valuable on disc to the educational market for years.
